VR Smart Grid

The VR Smart Grid Expert Advisor is a professional tool for trading grids of orders on financial instruments.

The algorithm of the program is arranged in such a way that the EA uses signals based not on the current price, but on the price of the channel. A special algorithm calculates the channel and the price range similar to the Donchian channel and uses it to generate signals. A special code processes the channel plotted using the Highs and Lows for the last several periods to identify the trend direction.


  • Seven trading modes, including manual
  • Two types of trailing stop
  • Works on any financial instruments (Forex, Metals, Crypto Currency)

Program settings, their detailed description and program behavior

  • Type trade - operation type, seven options are available.
    • Trade all orders - Auto trading - the EA uses all signals and trades both buy and sell orders
    • Only buy orders - Auto trading - the EA trades only buy orders, sell signals are ignored; this mode is effective during an uptrend.
    • Only sell orders - Auto trading - the EA trades only sell orders, buy signals are ignored; this mode is effective during a downtrend.
    • Stop trade buy orders - Auto trading - the EA gradually stops trading buy orders; this mode is effective during a downtrend to stop random buys.
    • Stop trade sell orders - Auto trading - the EA gradually stops trading sell orders; this mode is effective during an uptrend to stop random sells.
    • Stop trade - Auto trading - the EA gradually stops trading.
    • Manual trading - Manual trading - the EA provides a menu for working with the order grid. This mode allows traders use trend lines to manually specify the price levels for the EA to trade. The lines can be extended along the trend, against the trend, horizontally and vertically. The lines can limit the entry in time. It is recommended to study the video instruction!
  • Type Averaging - Type of order averaging, three options are available.
    • All orders - all orders by type, or sell orders only, or buy orders only
    • Two orders Maximal and Minimal - average two orders, the most unprofitable order with the minimum volume and the most recent order with the maximum volume. This unusual mode allows you to partially close the order grid and thereby bring the take profit value closer to the current price. Please note that this mode starts working only if there are at least four orders of one type, the All orders works up to that amount.
    • No averaging - averaging is not used. This mode is effective when used along with trailing stop and trend trading.
  • Trade only new bar? - trade on new bars
    • Off - the EA does not consider the appearance of new bars
    • On - the EA makes trades only when a new bar appears
  • Trade trend? - trade along the trend
  • Trailing Stop - works if greater than zero, classic trailing stop.
  • Trailing period - works if greater than zero, trailing stop based on the channel of the main signal algorithm.
  • Start lot - initial lot size
  • MM Type lots - type of lot calculation for the order grid, five options are available
    • Start lot - Start lot is used without changes
    • Martingale lot - each subsequent lot is multiplied by 2
    • Fibo lot - each subsequent lot is equal to the sum of the two previous lots
    • Sum start lot - each subsequent lot is increased to the starting lot in Start lot
    • Up lot + Dw lot - each subsequent lot is equal to the sum of the lots of the maximum and minimum orders.
  • Point order step - distance between orders in the order grid
  • Minimal profit for close grid - the minimal profit to close the order grid
  • The profit from the partial position closure - additional mode of reducing the open position.
  • Show Account Info - show the balance status
  • Magic Number - identification number of orders
  • Slippage - slippage

The best and smart EA. This EA should take first place in the market. Much better than all other expensive EA in the market.

There is potential... requires testing and optimisations to discover best settings for use.

Vendor has done much work. Now much work required by user before using Live.

Awesome EA! Find your right settings. Don't be greedy and build up your capital step by step. The key is not to loose money. Be happy about every profit whether it is much or not.

Thank you Vladimir! And also thank you Peter and Cliphton for your great contributions.

Прекрасный советник. Выдержал все мои тесты не только на валюте но и на европейском индексе. В реале приносит стабильный доход, без усреднения лота. Если использовать усреднение, то постоянный контроль обязателен. Автору большое спасибо за продукт и компетентную поддержку.

Thank you Vladimir

News filter and visual take profits/stop losses would be appreciated! Needs a way of determing trend to effectively utilize buy only or sell only type orders (it will buy only in a downtrend, eg, which is dangerous) Needs to pull orders that countertrend--some of them dont get pulled... Then you wake to over 100 pips in losses! Needs improve!

Start from 20 Dec with 1500USD deposit, 400USD profit at 28 Dec.

And this EA provided flexibility to meet the different situation.

Clifton 2018.12.07 04:01 

My turn to give thanks. Potentially a great place for social and like minded friends to learn and exchange ideas!

Least aside, I started with $600+ on 30nov 2018. It’s grown to 1k at the time I’m writing this now. 7dec 2018

Do fiddle and find your personal threshold for drawdown and timeframe and capital to start up.

Highly flexible and customisable. Vladimir-

Author is recommending it with 1hr time frame

Peter has his tailored 1min time frame

I’m doing it with 1min time frame too

Im thiking of combining author’s 1hr and my 1min set. One to work as short term and another as mid/Long term. Sorta like, two strategies running. And mitigate and spread risk.

(I’ll be withdrawing too at the end of the month 😀👊👍)

googs666 2018.11.15 13:02 

this is the best program for making steady income, if you can use this on 1:500 ecn account you can use bigger lots, and the money will blow your mind, no need for work just sit back and see the profit !!!! just keep an eye out for news on heavy trend days. Vladimir you have done an excellent job !! keep up the good work !!
